With our Chief Meteorologist Dan Zarrow calling for temperatures in the upper 90s, the state is bracing for its second official heat wave of the summer.

Now imagine that every car and every stove and oven were running solely on electricity. That's the direction Madman Murphy is pushing us toward in the future. A future he won't be around for. He'll be long gone, having used our state as his stepping stone to higher office and more power. The power he craves doesn't run on conventional energy. It's all fueled by ego.

But the fuels that we rely on to power our cars and other modern machines that give us the comfort we've become accustomed to will be outlawed by the Murphy Administration.

Imagine this kind of heatwave in the future where everything from your AC, stove, to your car, lawnmower, etc are powered only by electricity. The power grid will struggle to handle it. Could we expect rolling blackouts like they have in California?
